look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-dark chestnut with ruby highlights and a massive amount of head that slowly disappears and sticks to the glass

S-dark caramel malt, dark fruit (plums, cherries, raisins), light chocolate and molasses

T-lots of dark fruit, malt, brown sugar, yeasty spice, and a very light amount of hops

M-medium body, medium carbonation,

Overall this is really tasty, maybe a tad too sweet, but overall a beer that I would have again and again

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Very unique white bottle

Appearance: Dark mocha blackish brown, with 2 finger white head.

Smells: Like a trappist trippel, but with some more sweetness. raisins, plums, coriander notes, and dark figs.

Taste: Reminds me of the sweetness of a Chimay Blue, tastes pretty close to a Rochefort 8 in terms of flavor complexity and dark fruits. Very malty. This is a well balanced trippel, even though it has the ABV of a quad. For a 10% beer, the alcohol is pleasantly disguised. You actually can't taste it at all, although you can tell it's there due to the warmth in your throat. This is a damn good beer. The more it warms up, i'm enjoying it even more, the flavors really come out.

Mouthfeel: Amazing! Good amounts of carbonation and the sweetness just attacks your tastebuds.

Overall: Will buy when I see it, this is a damn good belgian. World class...
